Barbie Mode Danielle paper pattern scaled to fit a Sybarite doll

I have fitted this pattern in paper and will sew this in fabric now. Trapeze (a Sybarite doll) is the fitting model. The Japanese Barbie Mode patterns are so beautifully designed. It is a pleasure to work with them.

Took the pattern from above website, printed it out and traced pieces as is on coffee filters without seam allowances. Taped together and then cut and pieces to make alterations. Now I have to cut the paper coat apart to refine the pattern, then sew it up! It took 3 hours to get this far.

Here is the finished coat. It is made with silk organza and lined with pink silk organza. Sybarite Moon models.
